Arts & Humanities Programs
CCAC's Arts and Humanities programs encompass a wide range of educational offerings designed for individuals who want to launch their careers or pursue additional academic opportunities upon graduation. Employment options are varied and may include work in multinational corporations, nonprofit or not-for-profit organizations, academic institutions, performing arts companies, and government and advocacy entities. Entrepreneurial and freelance work opportunities also exist for those in the creative and fine arts. For many individuals, an Arts and Humanities degree can supplement knowledge in specific areas, with a number of courses that are ideal for people who are already established in their careers.
CCAC offers both certificate and degree programs in the Arts and Humanities career fields. Certificate programs help students acquire the skills and knowledge needed for entry-level positions, or these programs may be used to enhance an individual's marketable skills by adding credentials that may attract employers. Graduates may also choose to increase their knowledge by taking the additional courses required for an associate degree. By providing and requiring a greater number of courses, degree programs prepare graduates for more expansive employment options as well as opportunities to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to pursue additional educational credentials.
These programs provide students with the knowledge and skills for their first job. Or, while working, many graduates continue their studies at local four-year colleges and universities. These options can be explained by your academic advisor and the faculty teaching the courses in your program core.
